Protecting & Securing Your Critical Data with Acronis Backup

Businesses today face far more invasive and potentially damaging threats than at any time in the past. Your organization’s IT security is the first line of defense against incidents that can cause business interruption and data corruption. While backup should underpin every business’ data protection strategy, it is no longer enough. To truly protect data, you must deeply integrate security into backup and data protection processes.

Despite increasing attention to security, backup procedures are often neglected in overall security policies. Like the old adage says, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure: stopping threats before they can cause irreversible data corruption can save your business the expense and effort of data restoration. In some cases, it can be the difference in your company’s survival.

It’s important to recognize that your backups contain all of your private and potentially sensitive company data. Unauthorized access or hacking into backups can result in intellectual property theft as well as information exposure that could damage your business.
